I Left My Love

It’s been one week and I can’t breathe
I see your smile when I close my eyes
The last thing I know each empty night
Is how your hands felt holding mine

And I don’t need time, no I don’t need freedom
Forget the past we left behind
Just promise me this isn’t over
Give me your hands and I won’t let go

I left my love one Sunday morn’
And headed north before sunrise
Across the plains that lonely dawn
Shed little light upon these eyes

Well now it’s raining, the sky is fading
Stare at the ceiling and I can’t sleep
Late night temptations toward bus stations
So we both daydream a bit too deep

And I don’t need time, no I don’t need freedom
Forget the past we left behind
Just promise me this isn’t over
Give me your hands and I won’t let go

I left my love one Sunday morn’
And headed north before sunrise
Across the plains that lonely dawn
Shed little light upon these eyes

I guess I’m crazy to cling so tightly
To what you gave me, one night with you
But I just miss you and I need to kiss you
You saved my soul once, you know it’s true
